Julian Birkinshaw elected AIB fellow

The Academy of International Business recognise our faculty


The Academy of International Business (AIB) has recognised Julian Birkinshaw, Professor of Strategic and International Management, by electing him as one of its Fellows.

The AIB is the leading association of scholars and specialists in the field of international business. Established in 1959, AIB has 3023 members in 71 different countries around the world. Members include scholars from the leading global academic institutions as well consultants, researchers and NGO representatives.

Julian Birkinshaw was one of seven new AIB Fellows elected in 2008, joining 76 other Fellows who include John Stopford and Ken Simmonds, two of our Emeritus Professors. Sumantra Ghoshal was also a Fellow.

“I am sure you will join me in congratulating Julian on yet another marvellous achievement,” comments Costas Markides, Robert P Bauman Professor of Strategic Leadership and Chairman of the SIM Area. “He joins a group of outstanding AIB members in terms of scholarship, educational leadership and great service to the AIB.

“The AIB Fellows organize and participate in the Opening Plenary and other sessions at AIB annual conferences, they select the International Executive of the Year and International Educator of the Year who are recognized at these meetings, and they elect an Eminent Scholar who was not an AIB member but who marked the research of many of us. Julian is the perfect candidate for this!”
